I’m kind of ridiculously proud of/excited to share/giddy with delight over this one… Sad, I know. :S
Allow me to provide a short disclaimer:
No, I have not watched the movies.
Yes, the ring image I used is from the movie.
It’s not that I’m a hypocrite, it’s just this: They [the moviemakers] can’t get the people right, they certainly can’t get the story right, but they did manage to get the ring right! *confetti* (<- by “get right” I really mean I liked their portrayal and deemed it accurate to the book, while all the other things fell short, lol 😛 ) So I don’t mind using an image of the ring, but I do not plan on ever watching the movies.
There, conscience cleared. 🙂
Happy last-few-days-of-the-year, folks!
P. S. Okay, creepy weird, but I just realized this coincidence: I’ve planned this meme for a couple of weeks but only just got around to making it this last week (cuz, ya know, custom ring Os and all that). But this is Monday Meme #20, and there are a total of 20 Rings of Power.
3 rings for the Elven-kings under the sky
7 for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone
9 for Mortal Men doomed to die
1 for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor, where the shadows lie
I was quoting ^that^ to myself and was just like, hey, I wonder how many Rings of Power there are in total. And was weirded out when my math says “20” right as I’m typing “Monday Meme #20”. Kind of a stretch maybe, but still…
